Take 2: Liesbeck River Study

September 1, 2017 @ 08:45 - 11:30

I am so excited to be finally doing this outing! This little gem of a river has been on my radar since my early days in Cape Town. I have always loved the idea of tracing a river to its source, like the explorers did in days gone by. What I love about this outing is that Anton, from the Centre for Conservation Education, will be taking us to two sites along this river, which will give us a great…

Kloof Nek Water Treatment Plant

September 8, 2017 @ 09:45 - 12:00

Given that we’re in the middle of a serious water crisis, I thought that it would be appropriate to visit a water treatment plant, and learn about the ways the City of Cape Town is trying to conserve water and educate its citizens. I certainly don’t know enough about the journey of water from a water body into my tap, so this is sure to be an eye opener for us all! (We’ve had to bring this outing forward two…

Take 2: Savour the Sea and her Shipwrecks!

October 6, 2017 @ 09:00 - 12:30

Sigh, isn’t it lovely to feel Spring in the air? The evenings are getting longer, the mornings are lighter earlier. Spring has sprung! Although let’s be honest, in Cape Town it does take a while to really feel Summer’s kisses! But whilst we wait for her to shine her true colours, let’s get our bodies moving in anticipation of those glorious Summer days! This hike is lovely as those with small kids can do an out and back route along…

This is the week Cape Explorers! The one we have all been waiting for! For months! After rescheduling and rescheduling, surely we’ll be lucky the third time! We are going to experience the majesty of Table Mountain!   The costs have increased slightly but I will keep you posted, so for now, just think about majestic mountains!

Koeberg Nuclear Power Station,
South Africa
+ Google Map

This Friday we’re going to be visiting a new type of a power station, a nuclear one. Do you remember the other power station we visited a few years ago? In the visitor’s centre, we’ll learn how this power station provides power for South Africa, as well as learning how Eskom is seeking to respect the environment around the station. Please come prepared to enjoy the talk we’ll be given, and think about possibly doing one of the smaller hikes around…

Heavenly Hike!

November 10, 2017 @ 08:30 - 12:30

There is nothing quite like lacing up your hiking boots and getting ready to go into the outdoors – be it a walk along the coast, up a mountain or even through a forest! What I know for sure is that this Friday we will be hiking. What I don’t know for sure is which hike we will be doing! There are a couple that between now and then I will test and with time to spare I will let…

Take 2: Bountiful Biomimicry!

March 2 @ 09:00 - 12:00
Noordhoek Common

I can hear you all scratching your heads wondering what on earth Biomimicry is! I too didn’t know until a friend recently started working in this field. It’s truly amazing! Biomimicry looks at the brilliant way Nature has designed plants and then uses that as inspiration for all designs that humans need in order to live sustainably. Watch this short clip to understand it better… Now, today, at the Noordhoek Common, a biomimicry fanatic will be coming to show us how…

Elsie’s Peak

March 9 @ 09:00 - 12:30

Join me today as we climb Elsie’s Peak – a somewhat rocky but very rewarding hike! Wait a minute! You may wonder why we’re doing this hike again – well, as I thought of our last outing together as Founders, I realised I wanted to end doing something simple and something I loved with you special people, some of whom have been with me from day one! I chose to redo this hike as the last time we did this…

Ou de Kraal

March 23 @ 09:30 - 13:00

Lovely Explorers! This is it – our final outing! I’m actually a little emotional just writing that down! Please join me for a morning of celebration as we visit Ou De Kraal, and learn the history of this fascination little spot, and look at the nature of the Atlantic coastal shores. We’ll then have plenty of time to relax and celebrate the journey Cape Explorers has been on the last few years. Please bring costumes, towels, nets, snorkels and goggles…
